Project Description:

I have worked at Clubcard Printing for 9 years as a solo web developer working on multiple platforms. From Adobe Business Catalyst, Yii Framework, Wordpress to Magento 1 CE. and have been developed to replace a printing platform that was no longer serving the needs of the company.

It was planned and developed in 7 months. I have worked with designers to simplify and improve UI/UX for customers by using Ecommerce UI/UX patterns.

The big challenge on this project was learning Magento 1 at the same time as developing a completely new printing platform that Magento 1 (out of the box) could not actually replace.

– Created seamless customer flow through the website to improve conversion rate
– Used heatmap and session recordings to refine UI and UX
– Created Facebook and Email remarketing campaigns to increase average order value and customer retention
– Upgraded Magento 1 with Sphinx Search Engine to search through Products, Categories, Pages and Knowledge Base articles
– Decreased bounce rates by 50%
– Consulted on choices for server hardware
– Optimized website speed
– Created PWA app for mobile devices
– Analyzed traffic to improve sales opportunities
– Managed social media channels

This was a great experience in growing an online business on an open source platform. Making gradual website improvements helped me understand how customers interact with the website and which UI/UX patterns work better than the others.

There were a lot of challenges that I had to overcome and I’m grateful to CEO’s, managers and all the staff at Clubcard Printing for support they provided to me.
